The new Regency Brougham sedan takes its place at the top of the line. It features opera lamps, power driver seat and velour upholstry with embroidered Regency crests. The LS, which had been the most affordable of the Ninety-Eights, has been discontinued. The standard armrest bench seat went with it leaving all Ninety-Eight's with split-bench seating.

|Identifying an '82:|
The grille on the 1982 98 is slightly different from the 1983-1984. The 1983-1984 grille was smoother looking and more fine in texture like a 1976 98.
